Stack corruption when FD is > 1024

Bug Description

The Connection Module uses select() to manage the timeout in sync reception, but as FD_SETSIZE=1024 by default in GNU/Linux, the fd_set array of flags can only manage up FDs numbered up to 1024. Values greater than 1024 are common in highly-loaded multi-threaded apps using Jardin.

Also, FD_SET() of a FD greater than 1024 will actually make a stack corruption, with all its consequences.

A better approach is to avoid using select() which has the limitation of FD_SETSIZE=1024, and use poll() instead.
